It’s football season, and that means beer, wings, pizza and more! Oh, and football, right? Of course – football! While it’s fun to stay inside and watch football with friends/family, sometimes you’ve just got to get out and watch your favorite team with a crowd. But where is the best place to watch football in Spokane? We’ve rounded up the top six places to watch football in Spokane – let us know what you think of our list on our Facebook page!
The Best Places to Watch Football in Spokane
1) The Swinging Doors
A locally owned and family-operated business, The Swinging Doors is a can’t-miss location to watch almost any sport you want! The Swinging Doors has digital satellite and subscribes to the:
- NFL Ticket
- MLB Extra Innings
- NBA League Pass
- ESPN Gameplan

The Swinging Doors also has over 50 TVs, a 14′ HD projection screen for those good games, and more. The Swinging Doors always shows every NFL game on Sundays, offers a full bar and has 27 beers on tap.
The Swinging Doors is located at 1018 W Francis Ave, Spokane, and is open from Saturday – Wednesday, 7 a.m. – midnight and Thursday and Friday from 7 a.m. – 2 a.m.
2) 24Taps Burgers and Brews
One of the best places in Spokane to see your favorite game because you can ask for a mini speaker to watch and listen to your game! 24 Taps has dozens of TVs and, if you can’t hear your game well enough, you can get your own portable speaker to hear every play. 24Taps also offers 12 local craft beers and 12 large brewery beers.
24Taps is located at 825 W Riverside Ave, Spokane and is open on NFL Sunday from 9 a.m. – 10:30 p.m., non-NFL Sundays from 11:30 a.m. – 10:30 p.m., Monday-Saturday 11:30 a.m. – 10:30 p.m.
3) The Buzz Pizzeria Bar & Lounge
The Buzz is another locally owned and operated business, and in addition to the game, you can also enjoy The Buzz on other days too! The Buzz also offers trivia every Tuesday (starting at 7 p.m.) and a Comedy Showcase every 3rd Monday of the month.
The Buzz has happy hour all day on Sunday, meaning you can get started as soon as your team starts playing (or before – we won’t judge!) and take part in all of the Happy Hour offerings the Buzz has.
The Buzz Pizzeria Bar & Lounge is located at 501 S Thor St, Spokane and is open from Monday – Thursday 3 p.m. – 10 p.m., Friday 3 p.m. – midnight, Saturday 11 a.m. – midnight and Sunday 11 a.m. – 8 p.m.
4) Flamin’ Joes
Flamin’ Joes has two locations (one in Spokane and one in Spokane Valley), making it a little easier to find a centrally-located place to meet up with friends and watch the big game. Flamin’ Joes is known for its wings, and it also offers burgers, waffle fries, nachos and more. Plus, Flamin’ Joes has happy hour on Sundays from 9 p.m. until close for those late night games!
Flamin’ Joes is located at 7015 N Division St., Spokane and in the Valley at 11618 E Sprague Ave., Spokane Valley and is open from Sunday-Thursday 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. and Friday-Saturday from 11 a.m. – 11 p.m.
5) Lucky’s Irish Pub
Although an Irish Pub would seem to be known more for soccer and St. Patrick’s Day, did you know Lucky’s is also a great place to catch a football game? With three big screen and a decidedly party-atmosphere vibe, Lucky’s is the place to go if you want to enjoy a raucous football game with friends. Just beware of the jello shots!
Lucky’s is located at 408 W Sprague Ave, Spokane and is open from Monday – Sunday 2 p.m. – 2 a.m.
6) Waddell’s Pub and Grill
Waddell’s is one of our favorite places to go if you just want some tasty food, plenty of room, good beer and occasionally watch TV. It’s a great place to bring a ton of people because there’s so much room the spread out! This may make TV watching a little harder, so if you really want football in your face, 24 Taps might be better. But for overall experience, check out Waddell’s too!
Waddell’s Pub and Grill is located at 4318 S Regal St., Spokane and is open everyday from 11 am to close.
7) Pooles Public House
Another one of my favorites for good food (go for brunch!), good atmosphere and good TV watching. Again, the closer to the bar you can get will have better angles for TV brewing, but Pooles has such a great atmosphere, you’ll enjoy eating, chatting and watching the games. There are 2 Pooles locations, but my favorite location is the Ruby location. Pooles has a late night menu from 9 pm until 11 pm (celebrate that win!) and a breakfast menu for all of you 10 am football watchers!
Pooles Public House is located at 12310 N Ruby Rd, Spokane and is open from Monday-Thursday 11 am to 10 pm, Friday from 11-11 pm, Saturday from 8-11 pm, and Sunday from 8-10 pm.
8) Mac Daddy’s Pub and Grill
You’ve heard of Mac Daddy’s the food truck, right? Well, did you know they also have a physical location? They do, and it’s awesome!! In addition to their delicious mac and cheese offerings, Mac Daddy’s also has a full bar and 12 beers on tap. There are plenty of TVs, plus pool tables, and plenty of seating. Mac Daddy’s has happy hour Monday through Friday from 2 to 6 pm and all day on Sunday!
Mac Daddy’s Pub and Grill is located at 415 W Hastings, Spokane and is open from Monday-Sunday from 11 am until close.
9) (Spokane Valley) The Ref Sports Bar
There’s a lot going on at The Ref Sports Bar in Spokane Valley! In addition to an extensive menu and plenty of TVs, the Ref also offers games like air hockey, pool, and even basketball! Not into typical bar food? Head over Sunday morning for their brunch buffet. Grab a table, grab some food and watch as much football as you want!
The Ref Sports Bar is located at 14208 E. Sprague Ave., Spokane Valley and is open from Monday-Thursday 11 am to 11 pm, Friday from 11 to midnight, Saturday from 9 am to midnight and Sunday from 9 am to 10 pm.
